Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders will be battling out for a spot in the top 4 in match no. 39 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The last time they met this season, RCB outclassed KKR with a complete team performance and they will be looking to do the same and bag those two points to strengthen their chances of qualification for the playoffs.
Their batters have been their strength whereas their bowling is what they would be worried about. Their bowling looks a bit settled now with the inclusion of Chris Morris. They will have to give their best in fielding as well if they have to win this match. KKR will be expecting their top order to stay long at the crease simultaneously adding digits to the scoreboard regularly.
Their bowling looks better with the inclusion of Kiwi pacer Lockie Ferguson. He has been brilliant from the word ‘go’ and KKR will be expecting the same from him if they’re to bag those 2 crucial points.
These are the players whom you can bench from your Dream11 team for KKR vs RCB:
1. Isuru Udana (8 credits)
Isuru Udana has been chipping in with crucial wickets but at the same time, he has been expensive. He has picked up 7 wickets in as many matches but his economy is a touch too high (10.08). He has been termed as a perfect T20 bowler but he hasn’t lived up to that reputation this season. Hence, you can exclude him from your Dream11 team.
2. Andre Russell (9.5 credits)
Dre Russ hasn’t been up to the mark this season. Be it with the ball or with the bat. He has scored only 92 runs from 9 matches and picked up 6 wickets. He hasn’t been striking well and looks like bowlers are easily executing their plans against him. With better all-rounders available, you can choose to exclude Andre Russell from your Dream11 team.
3. Shubman Gill (9.5 credits)
Shubman Gill has had a good start to this season. But thereon, as the tournament progressed, he hasn’t carried forward the same form. He has started well for his team in the powerplay but has gifted his wicket thereafter. Therefore he is our third contender to be on the players’ list to be excluded from your Dream11 team.
